I’ve created a template with 70+ tracks neatly organised into folders. However it is a nightmare trying to mix this. What I want is a controller to assist me and I´m looking at the x-touch. I know I can scroll through 8 tracks at the time, but what I want to do is scrolling through groups of tracks. Eg. I have 5 vocal tracks, 4 Guitar tracks, 6 synth tracks and 5 percussion tracks. What will happen if I scroll through the tracks the controller will first pick up 5 vocal tracks and 3 guitar tracks, then 1 guitar track, 6 synth tracks and 1 percussion track.. and so forth.
What I want is the option to select all my vocal tracks on my first page, then my guitars on the second page, then my synths on the third page... or a combination of tracks, drums and bass, or perhaps even a buss.
I was thinking that this could be archived through some clever shortcuts by hiding different tracks, or by using screensets, but I’m not quite sure how this easily cold be set up by using a controller or be integrated in a workflow. Anyone have any tips, to this setup?
